Marriage itself is never easy. It’s a constant work in progress. Now add in Deployment and you have your self a very stressful situation for both parties.
My husband and I don’t bicker as often as some couples I know. What happens to us is things build up and just explode after 4 or 5 months. We never stay mad for long, just get it off our chest and leave it alone.
We had another one, he’s in Bahrain and I’m sitting here at home. It’s scary to know the one you love most in the world is mad at you and you can’t do anything but hope he believes you, and hope he understands. Fear is the worst feeling when you’re alone, all I wanted was to be with him even though he’s the one that scared me.
It’s been five months since I’ve seen the love of my life. There are two months until our 1 year anniversary and six months until I get to see him again. This is hard. but as he’s made it clear, not near as hard as what he’s going through. Stuck with those people in that place, I don’t think I could do it.. Hell I can barely sit here and wait for him.
